“People keep saying, ‘Chael, you’re hyping the fight.’ No I’m not. Hyping a fight is when I tell you guys, ‘This is going to be a great fight.’ I did just the opposite (before the first fight), and I’m going to do just the opposite now. This is not going to be a great fight. This is going to be (Anderon Silva) getting beat up for 25 minutes or until he gives up.”

“He’s one of these guys that throws leg kicks. So what if you get get kicked in your leg? What a bunch of [crying]. Getting kicked in the leg and admitting that hurts is like admitting you’re scared in the dark. It may be true, but if you say it, you’re a real wimp.”

‘If GSP said he wanted to fight me, the first thing I would say is the same thing I say every time I hear GSP talk: ‘Dang it that guy sounds like a French-Canadian Minnie Mouse,'” Sonnen said. “That’s the first thing I’d say. Then I’d say, ‘Hey, GSP, let me ask you a serious question – do you have a designated driver? Do you have someone to get you home safely? Because clearly you are intoxicated.’

“‘GSP, do you have a hankering for pain? GSP, did you lose a bet with God? GSP, bring your $3,000 suit, bring your $3 date and get the three-cent tan knocked off your socialist back.’ If you see GSP, give him that message for me.”

“If Brock Lesnar was here right now, I’d take my boot off and throw it at him, and he’d better polish it up before he brings it back to me,” Sonnen said. “Talking about he’s the baddest guy in the UFC? Brock, quit eating so many raw eggs and doing push-ups because it’s affecting your realm of reality. Are you kidding me? I’d slap you in your face, and you wouldn’t do anything.

“‘I’m Brock Lesnar. I’ve got this $5 haircut and a knife tattooed on my chest.’ I’ll shove it up your face if you get in Chael Sonnen’s way.”

Anderson, think it through.
There’s still a few months before they lock the cage door behind me and you.
Last time, they raised your hand, but it was plain to see
I took a lot more about of you than you took out of me.
I broke the mirror, and I blew away the smoke.
It was me who tapped, but it was you who broke.

-Chael Sonnen
